        It was *One Life to Live* in which Ellen Holly appeared, playing
the character Carla Benari (or Benardi), a black woman attempting to "pass"
as an Italian American.

"The universe was once conceived almost as a vast preserve, landscaped for
heroes, plotted to provide them the appropriate adventures.  The rules were
known and respected, the adversaries honorable, the oracles articulate and
precise as the directives of a six-lane parkway.  Errors of weakness or vanity
led, with measured momentum, to the tragedy which resolved everything.  Today,
the rules are ambiguous, the adversary is concealed in aliases, the oracles
broadcast a babble of contradictions."
                                  --- Maya Deren, from her notes for *At Land*
